Namaste Academy asks all new students (except at pre-school level) to do a test on admission. This does not mean that we intend to reject a child. We do not select only the best or the brightest at Namaste Academy but offer every child the chance to shine. Instead, the test performance allows the child’s new teachers to assess where she / he might need extra support to come up to the school standard, whether that is in Maths, English, Nepali or Science. In this way, we ensure that no child is left behind.
